    Why in Denver?

    I thought the new tradition was the defending champ gets to open the season at home. Is this another love fest for Peyton? Pretty disrespectful to the rats - but of course I love that.

    The Orioles refused to move their game in Baltimore and it's shared parking, or something like that where both teams can't play at the same time.

    Yea, that is the reason. Limited parking at Inner Harbo in Balt. You all see that short yardage TD by Rice? Leach led the way and kicked out that LB and Rice scores over the right side. That's football. that's what WE need to do in short yardage. Hoping our Johnson could do the same- but not so sure...

    I bet the real reason is no one would have gone to the Orioles game if Baltimore was playing at the same time.

    Baltimore is in the Hunt this year but really??? don't you think they could have moved the game to 1pm today?? What an economic loss for the city of Baltimore. Morons!!

    thanks. didn't know that was the case. but it's a crappy city (i lived there for awhile so i know) and it's not surprising they couldn't find a way to make it happen.

    speaking of that. once again, peyton manning - the NFL's most immobile QB, finds himself behind a line that does a really good job of keeping him protected. As we now approach something like the 9th year in a row with questions about OUR O-line and it's ability to keep Ben upright, I get more and more frustrated.
